The Museum of Romanticism (Spanish: Museo del Romanticismo) is an art museum located in Madrid, Spain. It was inaugurated in 1924 as Museo Romántico. It is housed in a late eighteenth-century building (two stories plus an attic floor, which is not open to the public). The building was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1962.
The museum was reordered in 2009 and relaunched with its current name (a modification that clarifies that the museum is about romanticism). The museum's exhibits are presented in the context of a historic house with a dining room, billiard room etc. They include items related to the romantic writer Mariano José de Larra.
